Barbara Henning at Poets House

POETIC PROSE AND THE PROSE POEM WITH BARBARA HENNING
6 Saturdays, February 25-March 31, 11:30 am-2:00pm

Which of us, in his ambitious moments, has not dreamed of the miracle of poetic prose (Baudelaire)

The Prose poem is a border genre particularly suited to tracing/guiding consciousness. This workshop will explore poetic possibilities while writing five works in prose and also reading poetry and poetics from some 20th century poetic movements--Imagism, Surrealism, Objectivism, Projective Verse and the New York School. .

Barbara Henning is the author of three novels and seven books of poetry. Her most recent is Cities and Memory, Thirty Miles from Rosebud and Looking Up Harryette Mullen.  She teaches for Naropa University and LIU Brooklyn.
